Next Question


Mr. James

Could you explain in one of your next lessons the differences between English and American accent? You are a good actor so it wouldn’t be so difficult for you to do so. I actually mean pronunciation of letters “r” and “t”.

Thanks in advance.

    Dear Mr.Qbazz,
    I `m just want to say it the letters ,but the difference in how to say it ?.It is also normal for all language , it is up to the person or the property that is responsible for humans learning .
    Thank you & Best Regards.

Hello James!!!How are you ?I hope you are quite great.It is quite a very nice lesson.Tell me please if Would is the past form of will.Thank you very much in advance.Your lessons have been very useful.Thanks again.—CARLOS


    an example:
    I thought she would walk to school with me (past tense)

    I think she will walk to school with me (present tense)


      Dear Mr.Sammy ,
      Is that an example for the present and the past .If so , i think there is a big different between each others as the second one may express the un possibility ,isn`t it?
      Thanks & Best Regards .


I love engvid

Hi James,
Your lessons help me alot. I have a question regarding this lesson. If non english doctor is talking to any english tourist how can he ask about his problem? what should he use? `will´or `would´/`can´or `could´? For Example: Can/Will u blink your eyes or Could/Would you blink your eyes?
Pls reply soon


    Hi Reema, Ans is:- Would you blink your eyes, please.


Hi James,
This lesson is very helpful to me. I have been confused between “will” and “would”. Now, I think I understand clearly. I have one more question. Would you like to show me the difference between “Could” & “Would”?? Which is more polite? Ex: Could/Would you show me….
I’m waiting for you answer. Thanks

Profile photo of conan1309 conan1309

    ok,i will answer for u between would and could :

    common verbs are not used to if in conditional sentences, but there are exceptions.
    • If you will / would: If ….. please. Often used in polite requests. Would polite than will.
    If you will / would wait for a moment, I will go and see if Mr. Conner is here.
    • If + Subject + Will / Would: If ….. be. To express voluntarily.
    If he will listen to me, I can help him.
    Will also be used in this verse form to express the perverse: If ….. certain, if …..

    If you will turn on the music loudly late the night, no wonder why your neighbors Complain.

Hi James,

      Dear james,i have a request
      i got a clear idea about could have and should have but i have no idea about would.
      I’m not getting much about ‘would’in unreal situation because there is no more examples given. Eg:’you would say”i would say’
      What happen if would is not use in these sentences
      ‘it would have needed’,’would have been expensive’
      How to use this expression?
      would in past and conditionals are found here in engvid but these doubts are not cleared yet. Awaiting your reply.

Hi James. I love Engvids with many many useful lessons given by many many good teachers. But I have to say that those given by you made me so tired. Please, give explainations in a simple way, stop raise your voice, nor swinging your hands in the air, or draw ugly useless shapes on the board. Thanks.

we use would for polite question ? can we use also will in the same question if we assume that the answer is yes. as i learn from your teaches we use would if the answer is no. how about the opposite could we use will for the question ?
